Full AISL membership is open only to librarians who work in independent school libraries. We also have special membership options for retired librarians and MLIS students. We are not affiliated with ALA, though many members hold both memberships. Due to our low membership fee, we do not pro-rate; the yearly membership runs from Sept 1st - Aug 31st.
AISL Membership: $30.00
AISL Retired Librarians Membership: $15.00
Student Librarian Membership: $15.00
Membership includes access to an active listserv that links independent school libraries across North America. Full archives are available, providing resources on a variety of discussions relevant to modern libraries.
When making a decision about library philosophies, policies, products and services, it is invaluable to have immediate access to so much expertise. AISL members have access to a tremendous amount of collective wisdom when investigating new products and trends. The AISL membership list is never sold nor shared. Vendors are encouraged to scan the schools we represent on the schools tab.
